Reaching out…meeting human need…in Jesus’ name!
Children of Warriors™ is a ministry of Candlelight Christian Fellowship
Essay Contest – Video or Written
Application Submission April 18th Thru June 14th
The Child and Warrior
The “Child of a Warrior” is not limited to the standard mindset of “warrior” as one may suggest. A “Warrior” may be anyone from a single parent to a first responder or casualty of war.
First Local Activity for Children of Warriors Ministry
The first local activity set for this year is an “Essay Contest” (video or written).
A 1- to 2-minute video or 1- to 2-page written submission must be developed by a young person 18 years of age or under nominating a “warrior” for recognition.
We are looking for local persons from Kootenai and/or Shoshone Counties who exemplify resilience and strength in character, parenting, and/or guardianship amidst difficult circumstances. A “warrior” is that person who, through facing trial, has demonstrated heroic action and perseverance.
Pastor Shahram Hadian
Here at Candlelight: Wednesday, April 28th
Dinner at 6 PM · Presentation begins at 6:45 PM
America just went through a coup to overthrow our government, and we may not even realize it. Most Americans have never lived through a coup, but Shahram has. In this presentation titled, “Living Through a Coup: 1979 Iran & Lessons for American Patriots Today,” Shahram will reveal what happened in Iran in 1979 and subsequently after, how Iran lost its freedoms and has not seen a free election in 42 years.
Shahram will share lessons for American patriots and Christians today, to prepare us for what could be coming here in our nation, now that we have experienced a coup.
Please share with your friends- this will be a very engaging and eye-opening presentation!

Small Group Sign-Ups
Small Groups offer a place to connect with other believers in fellowship, to grow in our understanding of God’s Word, to meet the needs of others in your group, to become equipped for evangelism and to join in lifting one another’s burdens before the Lord. At Candlelight, we believe that the Christian life is not meant to be lived alone and that Small Groups are a way for people to engage in biblical understanding that helps them become more like Jesus in every area of their lives.
Take a look at our existing Small Groups and JOIN A GROUP TODAY or SIGN UP TO BECOME A LEADER!

Adult Sunday School
Every Sunday – 9:30 am
Topics posted outside the GYM Door
DVD studies reveal the alarming state of Christianity today and what the church can do about it.
Proven ideas and the basics of apologetics to affirm the truth of the Bible in our modern age.
Many people both young and old do not hold a Christian worldview because they have not been taught the foundational truths of God’s Word. Dynamic speakers in these DVD series will proclaim the truth and authority of the Bible amid growing compromise, anti-God rhetoric, and secular activism.
Candlelight Christian Core Curriculum (C4)
C4 consists of studies that help bring that Big Picture into focus. It will touch on a variety of subjects that impact how we live our life in Christ. What do I believe? Why do I believe that and can I defend my beliefs? What does the Bible say about: relationships, marriage, parenting, my job or business, my money, government and political issues, the postmodern world I live in today?
We envision that C4 will give even a new believer a solid foundation on which to build – a good overview of the Bible and how to apply it to the issues that face us each day.
